As one might expect just from the name, “Teen Mom” is a show specifically about ruined lives. And things probably won’t turn out so great for either mother or child if the show is going to be any kind of commercial hit. Right?
Jenelle Evans, first featured as resident party girl on “16 and Pregnant” has derived little benefit from her time on the show. The girl has had a stint in rehab (a veritable Hollywood initiation rite), lost custody of her son Jace, and now is mired in a messy legal battle to get him back. She was also recently arrested for pummeling a girl on camera while her deadbeat boyfriend cheered her on with shouts of “What now, bitch!”
It’s debatable whether she’ll succeed in time to reap the financial benefits of Jace’s most assuredly lucrative future Reality TV career.
